The Census of Agriculture is the leading source of facts and figures about American agriculture. It is conducted every five years, and contains a tremendous amount of data, including information on the market value of products, production expenses, and crop cycles. The bright and well-designed website contains a Popular Topics area where visitors can find historical agricultural census data, read through an FAQ, and look up state and county agricultural profiles. The Factsheets area is a great place for journalists and the general public. The subsections include Geographic, Farm Numbers, Practices, and Production. The Demographic area includes wonderful fact sheets on women farmers, Hispanic farmers, and so on. Also, visitors can use the Find Data By section to look up materials by historical census year, state and county, or ZIP code. [KMG]
